K Kt to B3…

Fun Fact: the knight can visit each square on a chess board exactly once.

As we take The Knight’s Tour, we might send bombastic birthday greetings to Guy Fawkes; he was born on this date in 1570. On the 5th of November, 1605, Fawkes was apprehended in a cellar in the Houses of Parliament in London, where nearly two tons of explosives were also found.  He was executed the following January for his role in what has become known as The Gunpowder Plot.  Fawkes has enjoyed something of a renaissance, as the mask that caricatures his visage, featured in the film V for Vendetta, has become a symbol of the “Occupy” movement.
